Call for Papers: The 20th International Symposium on Transportation and Traffic Theory (ISTTT), July 17-19, 2013, Noordwijk, The Netherlands
Posted Under: Uncategorized
The 20th International Symposium on Transportation and Traffic Theory (ISTTT) will be held at the Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin, Noordwijk, The Netherlands from July 17 to July 19, 2013. The 20th Symposium will be organized by Delft University of Technology.
The ISTTT series is the premier gathering for the world’s leading transportation and traffic theorists, and for those who are interested in contributing to or gaining a deeper understanding of the field. The symposium covers all scientific aspects of transportation and traffic, spanning all modes of transport, including freight, air, and maritime modes, as well as private and public transport.
Sample topics welcomed by the symposium include but are not limited to:
- Traffic flow theories and their implications
- Traffic management and control
- Dynamics of transport phenomena, especially when coupled with observation
- Intelligent Transport Systems
- Travel behavior processes and demand modeling
- Vehicular interactions in mixed-mode traffic
- Congestion pricing and other policies
- Scheduled modes (public transport, air networks): system planning, service design and operations
- Pedestrian and crowd modeling
- Transport safety
- Network modelling and dynamics
- Routing and scheduling in transportation systems
- Freight transport modeling, logistics, and supply chains
- Terminal design and operation
- Transportation policy
Extended abstract and paper submission:
As in past symposia, paper review will be a two-stage process. An extended abstract (around 1000 words) can be submitted electronically to the organizers through the website www.isttt20.org between August 15, 2011 and January 15, 2012 for the first-round review. Since for the ISTTT series the principal criterium is the scientific contribution of the work, we emphasize that the extended abstracts need to provide sufficient (theoretical, mathematical or empirical) evidence to allow the reviewers to assess this contribution.
Please note that the official language for the ISTTT is (UK) English.
Accepted papers will be published both in the symposium book (Elsevier Procedia series) and in Special Issues of the Transportation Research series.
Given the high standards of the ISTTT series, only 36 papers will be selected for podium presentation and publications in the conference proceedings. In addition, around 24 papers will be selected for a poster presentation. These papers will be made available via the symposium website only.
